Goodbye NOW.....

Well, that's that - I'm outta here. It was ok while it lasted, but there is no way I am going to pay twelve quid a month....to watch adverts. Do NOW not understand the fundamental principle that paying for any streaming service or app or whatever is so you do not have to watch adverts. My subscription charge is your revenue - grabbing more revenue by showing adverts is nothing but pure greed. Don't get me wrong, I'm no Liberal lefty, I'm all for making money, but this, quite frankly, takes the utter p##s.

 

See ya......

You do know when you go to “cancel” you get offered discounts.

Haven’t paid full price entertainment or cinema membership for over 3 years! 

As for the “adverts” you can get rid of the third party adverts with Boost

Hi gavs

 

Indeed, they offered me half price for 3 months, and when I clicked the accept button, I got an error message!! Lol!! You couldn't make it up!

 

As for Boost - not sure if I can utilise that, I am using NOW through my Xbox.

 

But thanks for the heads-up anyway mate, much appreciated...👍🙂

So the only thing that you won't be able to use Boost for with the Xbox is 50fps for the Sports.

 

You will still get to have no third part adverts and 1080p along with 5.1.
